Zinedine Zidane has set his sights on signing Sadio Mane and Paul Pogba to overhaul the Real Madrid team, according to a report in Spain.

Spanish media outlet El Chiringuito TV, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that the new Real Madrid manager is keen to sign the Premier League duo.

The same article states that Zidane has been given complete control of transfers at the 13-time Champions League winners following his return to Real Madrid.

According to the same story, the France legend has earmarked Mane as a potential signing to bolster Real Madrid’s options on the wing.

The report goes on to add that Zidane has also been keeping tabs on Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen and Chelsea FC forward Eden Hazard.

Senegal international Mane has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past but a move hasn’t come to fruition.

Liverpool FC will be reluctant to sell their number 10 after his impressive performance in the Champions League in Germany on Wednesday night.

Mane scored either side of half-time to help Liverpool FC beat Bayern Munich for the first time at the Allianz Arena after their brilliant 3-1 victory.

The Reds signed Mane in a £34m deal from Southampton in the 2016 summer transfer window.
